Pracchana Karma is a method in which sharp objects like a needle or a blade is tapped on the surface of the skin so as to prick the surface of skin to remove the vitiated doshas from that particular part of the body. This is a part of raktamokshana therapy as sometimes a little blood oozes out from the pricks. In the traditional Chinese medicine and other international systems, it is known as Plum Blossom Needling. “Plum-Blossom” needle therapy is superficial tapping merely on the skin, but not the flesh. “Plum-blossom” means five or seven needles bound in a bundle. Plum blossom needling, often referred to as seven-star needling, refers to a group of needles attached to a wand. The flexible wand is manually manipulated to tap the needles to the surface of the skin. Extremely useful and result oriented in alopecia, vitiligo, psoriasis and other skin diseases.
